Long Term Requests

What is a long term request?

  • Any request over three weeks (21 days) is considered a long term request
  • Depending on the nature of the work, most schools set a higher pay rate than the normal daily rate to compensate for additional work (e.g. office hours, lesson planning, etc) 

Things to note:

  • Subs aren't automatically confirmed into a long term request
  • ONLY interested subs should add themselves to the waitlist
  • The school will interview the subs on the waitlist and may ask subs for their resumes
    • After the interview process, the school will select one of the subs into the request

Please note that Swing has no control over when/ if you will ever be chosen as a sub for a long term request. You can send a quick note to the school expressing your interest but it is completely up to them if they chose you for their role.

    Why I’m not being considered for long term request. I respond quickly and then the reply is “Being Considered “. Than they are assigned. I’m experienced with a teachers license and have Star Status. Ramdom issuing of assignments I feel ignores my status and experiences.
